Three months after part of the ceiling fell on to the audience at the Apollo theatre, London, its owners have announced it is to reopen with the West End transfer of the romantic horror story Let the Right One In.
The opening on 26 March will be the West End debut of a production by the National Theatre of Scotland. It also signals a return to normal business for the Apollo’s owners, Nimax Theatres.
A chunk of plaster ceiling rose crashed down on to the audience during a violent thunder storm in December, causing panic and confusion, and injuring 76 people watching a performance of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
In January the National Theatre announced it would not be returning, instead transferring its show to its Shaftesbury Avenue neighbour, the Gielgud theatre, in the summer.
